Watch Elmo Shout At A Baby

Elmo is so hot right now. He’s been the most popular character on Sesame Street ever since Big Bird went on that drunken anti-Semitic tirade, and now he’s got a big documentary at Sundance; Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey. But is Elmo’s fame and fortune weighing on the muppet’s psyche? This video might seem to indicate that the pressures of fame are just too much for Elmo, as he shouts at a woman’s unborn daughter to “come out!” and claiming to be able to see the baby, despite the fact that this is clearly impossible. I’m really hoping that Elmo gets the help he needs soon – I myself don’t want to have to report on any more stories like this, it’s too painful. (Vulture)
